Ponga un criadero de saltamontes en la cocina

17 julio 2013 - 15:50 - Autor:

Según la ONU, comer más insectos podría ayudar a combatir el hambre. Más de 2.000 millones de personas en el mundo ya lo hacen, pero el resto no quiere ni hablar de ello. ¿Y si pudiéramos criar nosotros mismos los insectos comestibles en nuestra cocina para hacerlos más apetecibles?

No son pocos los que piensan que tenemos que encontrar nuevas maneras de producir alimentos y acabar con nuestras nociones preconcebidas de lo que es la comida. Y esa es la idea de “Lepsis”, una unidad de cría y consumo de saltamontes que puede descansar sobre la encimera de la cocina como la Thermomix y que sirve para producir grandes cantidades de proteínas sin dedicar ningún espacio de tierra a la cría de alimento.

La idea es del diseñador Mansour Ourasanah, que vive en San Francisco, pero pasó los primeros 16 años de su vida en Togo. Cuando era un niño togolés, comer insectos era una parte integral de su dieta en épocas de lluvia: saltamontes, langostas y termitas aladas eran su mejor opción, aunque también las abejas, arañas y escorpiones (“si uno tenía mucho hambre”).

Mansour Ourasanah se centró en los saltamontes, pues ya estaba familiarizado con sus rápidos hábitos reproductivos y son los que mejor resultan al paladar de los occidentales. Y decidió que los serviría enteros, mediante el diseño de una versión más refinada de las trampas que él construía en África para criarlos.

El resultado es “Lepsis”, que se compone de cuatro módulos principales: un nido de temperatura controlada de acrílico donde están las larvas y los huevos, una zona de alimentación que proporciona el sustento, una zona de cosecha que recoge los saltamontes maduros y una pequeña luz que los atrae a la cosechadora.

Una vez al mes, los saltamontes se recogen en la unidad de cosecha que se puede separar para meter en el congelador y matar los insectos, mientras que los huevos siguen incubarse en el nido, comenzando el proceso de nuevo. Según Mansour Ourasanah, se podrían conseguir tandas de 100 saltamontes listos para pinchar con el tenedor.

Además de los aspectos funcionales del criadero, Ourasanah también invirtió una gran cantidad de esfuerzo en refinar la estética de los componentes para engatusar al ama de casa exigente con un utensilio de cocina estilizado, que pueda hacerse un hueco entre la cafetera, la tostadora o la licuadora.

Por ejemplo, la red verde dentro del nido da al dispositivo un ambiente futurista muy atractivo, pero también mantiene a los saltamontes lejos de las paredes de acrílico para que pueda limpiarse, para que sea un bello objeto digno de mostrarse en la cocina.

Porque, a pesar de que comer insectos nos resulta bastante repulsivo, un producto atractivo como el Lepsis podría ayudar a las personas a empezar a acostumbrarse a esta idea.

El diseño es uno de los finalistas de este año en los premios INDEX: Awards , que se fallarán en Dinamarca en agosto para honrar las soluciones innovadoras a los desafíos globales (Vía Inhabitat y The Guardian)

¿Paladares nás exigentes. estamos locos o qué??????????

Que se lo coma el HLGP de Rajoy y su prole de bastardos y vosotros también por hacerle publicidad a este sistemna frankesteniano.

Y que se les ha metido en la cabeza a estos hijo-put-as que tenemos que comer insectos…

guillotina ya!!! a la FAO al FMI al PP al PSOE y a todos los hijos de P-U-T-A que quieren vernos en la más absoluta miseria.

Comer insectos, no se me ocurre una locura peor. No entiendo a los de la ONU; con una dieta vegetariana se resolvería el problema de hambruna mundial (ya que en lugar de dar los vegetales al ganado nos los comeríamos nosotros mismos y en menos cantidad) además de que es una dieta totalmente viable, sana y equilibrada. Hay muchas páginas en internet con recetas y no es nada difícil.

Pues nada estupendo ya tenemos dieta para el congreso y el senado y lo que les sobre para la casa Real no te jode, vaya tela, osea , cornudos y apaleados y para beber que otra cosa se les ocurrirá, un poquito de lejía no?

Lo cierto es que 100 saltamontes para comer me parece una buena idea para comer en un mes. Si no es muy cara pienso comprarla, y me gustaría compartir el resultado pero creo que no será posible, pero pequeños esfuerzoscomo este pueden ayudar a mejorar tu vida y la de los demás.

En realidad, comer insectos tiene muchísimas ventajas. Además de ser mucho más ricos a nivel nutricional que la carne convencional, su producción es más eficiente y medioambientalmente sostenible: producen menos gases de efecto invernadero, consumen menos agua y precisan de una menor superficie para crecer.
Además, tienen un buen sabor (en la antigua Roma las cigarras con miel eran consideradas todo un manjar por la aristocracia). Y si el sushi (pescado crudo!) se pudo introducir en la cultura occidental, ¿por qué no los insectos?

Podrían decirme ¿qué les doy de comer a los insectos para que se desarrollen?
Antes de freisrlo ¿Es necesario cortarles la cabeza y el abdomen inferior? Supongo que también botan excretas por esa razón deberíamos cortarle el abdomen inferior o rabo.

Your Hub is actually valuable towards the web community

Para esos compas que creen que comer algunos insectos es locura y asqueroso, documéntense un poquito, la información la tienen a la mano, no ocupen sus máquinas para cosas superfluas. Para su conocimiento 100 gramos de saltamontes ( de los comestibles) tiene más proteínas que un bistec de res. Pero sigan consumiendo comida chatarra hamburguesas de carne de rata jajajaja. Esto va para Pepe,Herman, Luis Nanclares y Rubio, y buen provecho sigan consumiendo embutidos de las mejores marcas de negocios transnacionales

I mastered more new things on this fat loss issue. A single issue is a good nutrition is very vital while dieting. A big reduction in fast foods, sugary ingredients, fried foods, sweet foods, red meat, and bright flour products could possibly be necessary. Keeping wastes parasites, and contaminants may prevent objectives for losing fat.
